I needed source control for a project so here are my notes!
Visual SVN Server:
Right click in Windows exporer, then TortoiseSVN settings and put in the global ignore pattern above.
I also tick _svn to make future stuff a bit easier on Win systems (eg searching)
Add an Existing Directory into Source Control
Right click on newly created Test in VisualSVNServer Manager and do Copy URL to Clipboard
If prompted to create a user, do so.
Go to Windows Explorer, right click on the directory you want to add to Source Control, TortoiseSVN, Import. Control V to insert the correct SVN name you coppied from Clipboard above.
Can now see files in SVNServer Manager.
Then (and this is the slightly weird bit), you have to overwrite the original files you imported with what you just put into source control.
Source control is now working!
If icons don’t show up then try:
Doing a diff on different versions of the same file!!! Right click in win explorer, Tortoise SVN, diff.
Added in more files in the second revision, and deleted one too.
